4.11.5 WordPress Real Media Library
Real Media Library helps you with media management. Organize thousands of uploaded files into folders, collections and galleries. A real file manager that allows you to manage a large number of files such as images, videos or documents in WordPress. Everyone’s media library folder!
Real Media Library is a WordPress plugin that empowers you with advanced media management. With this plugin, you can organize thousands of images, audio, video and PDF files in your media library into folders. Basically, it’s a file manager, like Windows Explorer or Mac Finder, but for WordPress.
Why do you need this plugin?
A growing WordPress blog or website means that you are adding lots of new media files to your database every day. In a matter of weeks, your website will be filled with thousands of media files. How can you find these files in a flat list? Sure, you can use the WordPress search function and spend hours looking for a single file, but who can remember the names of thousands of files?
Easily organize your media
That’s where the Real Media Gallery plugin comes in. With this plugin, you can easily create folders, collections, and galleries for your images to properly organize your media library. The next time you’re looking for a file, just click on it in your file manager.
Organizing your blog media files with the Real Media Library plugin is as easy as dragging and dropping them into folders. You can rearrange the order of your files by dragging and dropping them, and move important files to the top of the list for faster access.
Additionally, you can use the Real Media Library plugin to add media libraries to your posts directly from the WordPress “New Post” editor. This allows you to add your entire media folder as a customizable gallery to your WordPress posts.
Real Media Library is a must-have plugin for WordPress media management, and it will save you a lot of time managing your media files.
Folders, Collections and Galleries
As you can see from the Real Media Library plugin screenshot (GIF), it supports three file sorting methods.
Folders. A folder can contain any type of files and collections, but not galleries. To create a subfolder, simply select a folder from the list and click this button.
Collection: a collection can contain any type of file, but not a gallery. A collection cannot contain files. But you can create other collections and galleries there. The galleries mentioned above are just a gallery data folder, which means they are not automatically placed on your front end (your website). You can create a visual gallery from this gallery data folder on your page/post using the Gutenberg Editor.
Gallery. A gallery data folder can only contain images. This makes it easier for you to distinguish the location of your visual gallery. You can also drag and drop images into your own image order.
